There is more than just nails and hair going on at the Nail Artisan of Manatee County salon run by Desna Simms (Niecy Nash) with her best friend Jennifer (Jenn Lyon), Polly (Carrie Preston), Quiet Ann (Judy Reyes), Virginia (Karrueche Tran) and her twin brother Dean (Harold Perrineau) in this dark dramedy written by Eliot Laurence.

What The Critics Are Saying (Metascore 63)

  • Sparkly nail salon culture, the low-life Floridian crime world and the close camaraderie of female friends is a winning combination for Claws, a series that favors true situation comedy and stylistic flair above trashy girl and bling clichés. — Lorraine Ali, Los Angeles Times
  • Like “Animal Kingdom,” it will never be confused with quality TV, nor will it take you somewhere you’ve never been before. But as a bit of flamboyant drama, where subtlety is a lot less important than the bright Florida hues and the ladies’ flashy costumes, it will do. — Matthew Gilbert, Boston Globe
  • It’s like two shows were grafted together and it remains to be seen how long it will take for the tone dosages to adjust. — Tim Goodman, The Hollywood Reporter
